South Lyon Street Bridge (1986)

I updated the page and tried to clarify things by converting this page totally to the Bailey truss (since the NBI info was all for that bridge) and adding another page for the predecessor bridge.

Note for future reference: The design on this page was originally listed as a "double-intersection Warren pony truss". I am assuming the original creator of this page was referring to the Bailey truss, although there is a slim chance it was for the design of the pre-1986 bridge.

This is a confusing listing. It appears to reference a bridge that was replaced in 1986 with a Bailey truss? In either case it appears even the 1986 Bailey truss is now slated for replacement. https://www.thedailynewsonline.com/news/local/south-lyon-str...
